Android Question

requestFocus not working

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:padding="20dp" >

<AutoCompleteTextView
android:id="@+id/autocomplete_zone"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
android:dropDownVerticalOffset="0.2dp"
android:ems="10"
android:hint="@string/zone_hint"
android:inputType="text"
android:lines="1"
android:maxLines="1"
android:popupBackground="#00ffffff"
android:textColor="#ffffff"
android:textColorHint="#ffffff" >

<requestFocus />
</AutoCompleteTextView>

<ProgressBar
android:id="@+id/progressBar1"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:layout_alignBottom="@id/autocomplete_zone"
android:layout_alignRight="@id/autocomplete_zone"
android:layout_alignTop="@id/autocomplete_zone"
android:paddingBottom="5dp"
android:visibility="invisible" />
</RelativeLayout>


In the above markup

<requestFocus />


does not work. The text view is not focused when the activity is started. Is this because of the progress bar which overlays the text view? Any ideas how to fix this?

Answer

Solved it! In manifest I added following to the activity:

android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible"
